:) thanks

Though i did do a stupid. Totally forgot to remmber about my latex allergy :( its not in my records and i haven't had an issue with it since i was younger (not an issue with the gallbladder because the surgery area was already latex free). So yeah, a couple of hours later, my back was itchin' good. Had to remove the latex-y ones and replace them with the non-latex-y ones. Good thing i decided not to wait the full 48 hours before removing them :blink:

I did, however, remember my issues with neosporin and made sure i got the right antibiotic.

M decided it should be in pasta with other lasagnas. I thought about making copies and putting recipes in more than one place but ......too much work. I got some cute binders and the only recipes in these will be the ones I know we like. A pocket page in each section for recipes I want to try but haven't earned the right to be in the book.

I had a friend that defrosted a kitten. A feral cat had 2 kittens somehow on top of the wood pile - in a window box over it or something. the kittens fell down into the wood pile and got stuck. My friend came home and realized something had happened. She dug them out and one was frozen & dead. She brought them in and warmed them up and the dead one came back to life. She was always a bit uncoordinated and odd but a nice house cat.

You could get the colored foil stars and if you put the dish in Mexican food designate a color star for pasta (use the other colors for your other food groups like rice, etc) then there's no need to duplicate the recipe (though the binders sound adorable and you are worthy).

I tempted the Celiac God/dess and (shame on me) had a falafel yesterday. Bad Loey!!! I KNOW it has wheat in it and it came from a fast food place called Pockets so I also know it was cross contaminated. Don't have the runs (though I'm running to the bathroom frequently) but the roids are out in full force and now I have to get dressed for the NYE party. Now I have to decide if I should wear depends under my pretty new (p)leather leggings. When will I learn that cheating death does not make me invincible?!

I hope you all have a wonderful NYE be it spent quietly or at a party. Drive safe - remember all the other fools on the road. Our party is just up the hill but Superman (Rob, my DH to anyone new to the forum or our thread) will drive me there. Not as physical as I want to be (exercise wise ;) ;) ) and we had our first significant icy snow so we'll drive.

BTW, I do hope to make it to either DC or Leesburg this summer if the $ holds out. It's scary without Rob having an income but we have enough for at least a year and he's pretty savvy with the stock market (after a very hard lesson 20 years ago with margin calls). If/when we get down there I want to meet my psillies from the area. G-eff we talked about it in the past before I got even sicker and I'm hoping Vince isn't far from there. I REALLY want to meet all my dear psillies. Again, Gluten Free section reserved for the party on the 19th in Jersey and the extended forecast doesn't predict snow until that Sunday (party is on Saturday). I don't need to know in advance as it's a buffet.

OK, Superman is getting ready for the party and I'm still in my robe.

Much Love,

Loey

two moles removed and 9 stiches later in my back....

More gentle hugs to you. I'm allergic to most band-aids and adhesives. I was not a pretty sight at the hospital when all the tape, etc came off (plus I had Shrek hands due to retaining fluid).

I SO wish Rob hadn't sent Tony a pic of me on life support. Talk about trying to get his attention (during finals). Oh, if I had it to do over again I wouldn't have coddled him (I swear Kareng- it's continuing to bite me in my sizable arse). He gets back from Israel on Thursday and I've been given the go ahead to go to JFK as long as we stop every hour for me to stretch and I wear my back support.

OK, the NYE party has started and we're going to head out in a few minutes. Hopefully the Ambrosia came out well. It's become my signature dish in the neighborhood for parties. Easy to make as well.

More love,

Loey :wub: :wub: :wub:

Well, dunno if Re-peep is gonna make it. Dovey is a terrible mom. Got the wee one out of the nest waay too early. Leaves her alone to run for treats. Knocks her away while scratching, and I came home from dog-sitting, right at dusk, to fin Re-peep alone in the pen, cold, bloody, abandoned. Of course as soon as I went in the pen all the big girls came barrelling out of the coop -- on top of Re-peep. I grabbed her as quick as I could and wrapped her in my hands to warm up. Not sure if she's missing an eye, or just got pecked near it, too much blood to tell.

Decided the warmest spot is under her mom, and she should be pretty quiet over night. Had to wait a long time to get them back in the coop, and when I put Re-peep in under mom she scratched her out and pecked at her. Finally got her settled and the chick underneath her, but she could be squashing her for all I know.

Going out in the pirate's boat tonight to sit in the Sound and watch the fireworks from the Space Needle. I guess when we get back tomorrow I'll see if the peeper is alive, and decide if I need to raise her inside. It wouldn't be any fun for her for a number of reasons so I'm hoping she survives the first week until she's a little bit more able to defend herself.

Glad you got home safely. My thoughts have been with you and your family. Isn't Cranbury lovely? I still would love to read your sermon.

Happy New Year to you and the family,

It was recorded, but there was some tech difficulties so I do not yet know if they were able to salvage it or not. I was hoping to use it for my resume too... :(

Ah geeze -_- Sorry about the bebehs. And rest that back!!! (I also vote chiro... know some peeps don't like 'em but mine got me walking again after a slipped disk broke me, so I'm partial ;) )

I'm in agreement about chiro. Just started seeing one last week in my PCP's office. After 2 adjustments I felt amazing. Of course I undid it all at the party by sitting on a soft, sinking sofa most of the night. Can't sleep so I'm heading down to ice it. can't wait until Wednesday when I see her again. She also uses a tens machine with moist heat on top of it. I swear she's a miracle worker.

Love,

Loey

A happy, sleepy New Year to all!

Re-peep is still with us, and her mom was sitting on her early this morning. I'll bring her out some warm sugar water in a bit.

Fireworks from the boat were fun, and really really cold. Fortunately we had warm kitties to come home to.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

It's been a rough year.( Brian being on disability 3 separate times. Really hurts the pocketbook) So glad the holidays are over.( I am a bit of a Scrooge, I'm afraid. Could really do without all the stress) Now if I can just get through the winter (Absolutely HATE cold and snow!)But......looking forward to what the new year will bring. Very optimistic that it will be an awesome year!

Best wishes to all. Healing thoughts to all ailing psillies....including feathery ones.♥

I keep thinking it's Sunday. Glad it's a Tuesday cuz Tony comes home Thursday (YAY!!!)

Overdid it yesterday and then stayed at the party until the end. My back is totally !@#$%^! I see my chiro tomorrow and hopefully she'll work her magic - I REALLY want to go to the Airport Thursday.

Love to you all,

Loey

P.S. I think Re-peep (and Jessss) should be our mascots that ANYTHING is possible with love & faith.

    • Hey there! Welcome to the club you never wanted to be a part of. Boy, you are certainly throwing yourself one heck of a bang up pity party aren't you? PLEASE do not take that as a put down! I don't think there is a single solitary one of us who hasn't thrown ourselves at least 1 pity party. I know I've thrown at least 3. Oh, & crying meltdowns in the grocery store? Every one has been there, done that one too. It's all part of the process just like cyclinglady said. Ravenwoodglass is right on too about how it can mess with your head. Boy! Can it ever mess with your head! You really have been given excellent info. by all who have answered. I want to touch on something that hasn't been addressed yet but you mentioned it and that is kissing. You might call me an old lady as I'm just shy of 60 but I'm also a child of the 60's so remember that when you read what I'm going to tell you. BTW, I'm married to the same person, my only marriage, for 43 years. Anyone who cuts & runs because they have to brush their teeth before kissing you is not worth 2 minutes of your time and you are well rid of them! Be thankful that you have this "screening tool" because it will save you a lot of wasted time. If they won't even give you a chance when they hear about the precautions you have to take then they aren't worth a damn! Imagine someone like that standing by your side when times get tough. You can't can you? That's because they won't and you want a true partner who will support you and hang in there through the challenges we face in life & believe me, you will both face many life challenges.  Cooking. You don't have to be a gourmet. Cook simple. You know how to boil & scramble & fry eggs right? Only takes a couple minutes. Veggies? Aw heck, nuke 'em OR throw them on a baking pan spritz them with olive oil & spices of your choice & stick them in the oven. Smoothies are easy. Fresh fruit is well, fresh fruit - easy - peel it & eat it or just pop it in your mouth. Sweet potatoes can be nuked too & are wonderful for you. Salads are easy. Nut butters are a great source of protein. Karen had some great examples in her post too. Her "attitude adjustment" tips are great as well.  
    • I was only asking because when ferritin is low that you can experience hair loss/fatigue etc. even if your other iron levels are in range. This just happened to me so I thought I would share just in case it helps you. Ferritin should be above 50 to be optimal, not just "in range."  I've been on iron supplements and much better now. This may not be your problem at all, but I would have them check your ferritin levels. Low iron or anemia is common with celiac. The ferritin test is measuring how much iron is stored in your body. FYi: Iron binding capacity is really telling you how much protein your liver is making in order to carry that iron around. Usually, iron binding capacity will be higher in the range when iron is low. Edit: Also my blood pressure was low when my ferritin level got very low.
    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck. 
    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.
